Sitting here tonight waiting for the big one, the big one being a winter storm. According to the weather folk on social media this is going to be our biggest storm in quite a few years, since we really haven’t had a major accumulation in the past five years it shouldn’t be difficult to top it.
Our last really big snow was in 2004 I believe and topped out around twenty inches. I don’t think we beat that but you never know and if we do it should make for some crazy photography.
All these images I have posted here came from last week and that was just six inches so twelve plus will really make these more impressive. But with the weather you never know what it is going to happen so we will just have to see how it pans out.
Here is a small gallery of the wonderful early season wildflowers that grace the canyons and woodlots of Jefferson County Indiana.
Going clockwise we have Bloodroot, Hepatica,Harbinger of Spring and Rue Anenome . All of these little gems can now be found blooming all across Southern Indiana and many other places across the Midwest.
There is not much in life that I enjoy more than wandering all the wild places that our home has to offer and attempt to capture and share the beauty of these amazing examples of the natural elegance that the spring bloom has to offer.
It doesn’t last long and it is something you really must witness in person. So get out of the house take a hike to one of the great natural areas we have here in Southern Indiana.
